ISUnet Security Enhancement Plan
Saturday, January 1, 2005
During the fall 2003 and spring 2004 semesters, Illinois State University (like most other higher educational institutions) experienced several major network and email based virus outbreaks that disrupted network availability for faculty, staff, and students alike. In response, the networking group was instructed by the Associate VP for Technology in October 2003 to develop a plan to address the shortcomings of the current network environment. The goal was to prevent these outbreaks from recurring and provide the most effective approach to deal with future threats. Researched, developed, and approved over the course of the 2004 calendar year, the ISUnet Security Enhancement Plan is the result.
